Representative Cases

Patient v. General Surgeon and Hospital 2009

Cynthia Newton and James Coon reached a $2,350,000 settlement in a medical negligence case against a surgeon and hospital nursing staff. The case involved a retired contractor who underwent an elective abdominal aortal aneurysm repair. Following surgery, hospital nurses and the surgeon noticed that the patient had no pulses in his feet. Additional surgery the next morning, aimed at removing clots from leg arteries, was unsuccessful. His condition worsened and he was transferred to a metropolitan facility where he underwent bilateral below-the-knee amputations, a splenectomy, and bowel resection for ischemia. The settlement, on behalf of the plaintiff and his wife, was reached on the eve of trial.
